Re: [opensuse-packaging] FoxitReader (non free)

Hello,

following up on the discussion about the removal of acroread for
openSUSE 13.1, I tried to package the FoxitReader PDF viewer here:
https://build.opensuse.org/package/show/home:endzone/FoxitReader
(publishing is diabled)

The reason for doing this is that Foxitreader provides some of the
advanced GUI printing functionality that acroread also provided, but OSS
PDF viewers are missing currently (due to KDE printing not moving forward).


I have some questions about the redistribution license from here:
http://www.foxitsoftware.com/pdf/rd_rla.htm
Will this allow me to build the package on OBS?

The Linux version of FoxitReader has not been updated since 2009, so I
dont know if it is currently vulnerable to any security issues...

Best regards,
J Brauchle


"Redistributor should not redistribute any version of Reader to general public, via any media, without prior written authorization from Foxit."

openSUSE == Redistributor, "any media" == OBS (remove it from your home project)


Not a solution to any problem.
